  1. hmm.. can't say i've really tried to use external displays to be honest... was back at the start of this thread i gave it a go and it was crashing all over the place. the most recent dsdt and config, not given it a whirl but i do get significantly less gfx issues with El Capitan. that aside, i've now installed encrypted Win 10 on this machine as i needed it for work will keep an eye on clover dev though, hopefully one day FileVault2 will be an option
  2. Is hardware level encryption possible with this drive?
  3. ah ok, i'll probably skip #5 then, as i do not have an i7
  4. hmm.. there's a good chunk of stuff in there that i personally would like more explanation about... 1. What is IntelMausiEthernet.kext, is it instead of IntelE1000e.kext. How does it differ? 2. Is EAPDFix.kext something to do with Audio? 3. How does BrcmPatchRAM2.kext differ from BrcmPatchRAM.kext ? 4. ACPIPoller, is this required for batterymanager stuff to work correctly? I'll give this ApplePS2Controller a whirl... I assume your trackpad works? Other things that I'm not certain about, because (i guess) i have a different CPU, i have to include a random bit of clover config that i don't really understand "New Way", in order to not get a KP... what does this section do? <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>Type</key> <string>0x0706</string> </dict> Also, when i attempt to execute ddstPRGen.sh i get an error about the CPU not being recognised that i don't really know how to get past.... any tips there? I'll upload a picture when i get time. Ty.
  5. @van_axl - did you get your trackpad working, and do you have power saving sorted out? these are two areas i am still struggling with. i have the EXACT machine that you do. Ty.
  6. does anyone have touchpad working? grr
  7. install going a treat.. just verifying that the DSDT works etc... i STILL do not have keyboard / touchpad on boot for the installation, and it really annoys me that i have to plug in an external kb and mouse. i put the ApplePS2Controller.kext in the "Other" folder, as i do with all the others.... the only thing that i can think is that it needs to be in the 10.11 folder... grr Or maybe i've got an old version?? The ALPS one seems to work ok...
  8. nice one ty, ApplePS2Controller... i honestly still don't know if i'm using the latest one on that, no amount of googling allows me to locate it from the horses mouth - my trackpad works fine though so that's all good
  9. Nice, the main thing i'm interested in is the i5-5300u so this should work fine, ive got the touch screen and feel so-so about it tbh gf is away this weekend, so now i can get my geek on! what was the final list of *.kexts that you used? - i really want to stop using Vietnam Tool, and i feel it's a bit erm... "blackbox" ty!
  10. yeah but that launches the efi of the disk right? not your usb?
  11. well, you've got a couple of options: 1) insert the usb into a windows machine, and you'll see the EFI partition by default 2) run "defaults write com.apple.DiskUtility DUDebugMenuEnabled 1" in ther terminal (with diskutil closed) then launch diskutil and select show all partitions from on of the menus (i forget which), then just right click your EFI partition, and click "mount" 3) run clover configurator, and in the interface choose "mount EFI" - not 100% on this one though Personally #2 is my preferred option Good luck!
  12. oh right, cool. can either of you humour me and let me see the latest config.plist (and DSDT) that you ended up with in a new download so that i can compare with my own now that you've cast your expert eye over it Jake? Ty,
  13. hmm.. are you sure? He says that FakeSMC is in his 10.11 folder here -> https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/7844-e7250/page-11&do=findComment&comment=54030 @dstrukt, i notice you've got the i5 CPU, same as me (is yours touchscreen?). I also had this error, but can't recall off hand how i fixed it... i do remember have to step through the config.plist line by line to see what the offending line was though I post about it here -> https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/7844-e7250/page-8&do=findComment&comment=52008 This is probably down to Jake having an i7 machine and thinking about it a bit more i might have stopped using a DSDT completely because I've not been doing this long enough to dump and patch my own DSDT... Of course, this could be a complete red herring though, looks like this is something i need to double-check
  14. this thread is now basically replicating exactly what i went through a few months ago, steep learning curve of pain Got there in the end though (minus SSDT) @dstrukt good luck!
  15. random question alert: can i install OS X on an SD card, and boot from it?
  16. will this cover creation of SSDT as i have the touch screen e7250 with the i5 and i've still not got around to this Is this in relation to the version of ApplePS2Controller ?
  17. ok, so nothing really that new then i guess.. what is this SIP thing, can you explain a bit more? i will do some proper research later this week ty.
  18. any el cap issues that i need to know about? anything fixed too?!
  19. right, cue stupid questions.. do i just boot into OS X and "run" this.. somehow? Ty.
  20. cheers for the reply... nice tip on the boot entries, i think i will defo do that too, more of a cosmetic thing though i guess so will leave it 'til last. yeah i guess the i5 vs i7 to be the issue here, i have the e7250 w/ 1080p touch screen, and this was the default CPU... i guess i need to generate my own SSDT, this area is still quite grey for me and I'm not sure if the DSDT might be to blame too?? maybe you can clarify? DSDT is for devices, and SSDT is for power things right? only work i've done last week was wipe the machine and re-install Win8.1, and then upgrade it to Win10 to activate it in prep for a clean install dual-boot... when i re-install OSX next week i shall see what the items show up as in about mac My touchpad, i actually use an ALPS kext from HVT i believe...
  21. ooo, another entrant, excellent! your last few posts raised a couple of queries with me... 1) what do you mean by "modified it for custom dual-boot entries" re: the config? 2) which DSDT/SSDT file did you use, I am still having issues with my system whereby i get a KP if use the ones in this thread without "FixRegions" & "newWay" in the config - did you do this? 3) i got my DW1560 working with the broadcom wifi checkbox from Vietnam tool... it works, but is it 'right' --> what does FakePCIID actually do? 4) i do not use AppleHDA_ALC293, i just use the VoodooHDA, again from Vietnam tool... it works, but is it 'right' ? 5) on my latest build... with the latest DELL BIOS, ACPIBatteryManager causes the battery icon to flicker on and off... not sure if this is a problem with the power management on the machine though, or config, not had time to investigate 100%, anyone seen this though? That's probs all for now Still dicking about with FileVault2, might give up to be honest... seems like a lot of hassle, and there is 0 info on the net that i can find. Either of you had any luck? Ty,
  22. ohhh I see, I'm not gonna lie but I'm not especially confident in sorting out my own DSDT/SSDT... And certainly not on patching it.. are there any guides / starter for 10 posts somewhere I can read?
  23. as soon as i import your DSDT / SSDT into clover, i get a KP based around detecting the CPU (i think) ... through trial and error, i matched your config to mine, and this was the culprit.. i have no idea what it does?! <key>Fixes</key> <dict> <key>FixRegions_10000000</key> <true/> <key>NewWay_80000000</key> <true/> </dict>
  24. Alright, cheers. Where is the right place to dl both of the latest versions of those, just off the Vietnam tool? Will do my best re: the testing, i'm trying to renovate a house at the same time so time is tight here too :s
  25. argh... i just re-installed 10.10 and can't remember how to get the blasted trackpad going... having no mouse is erm.... interesting!
